Get Started & Thrive
Get Started & Thrive is a 5 week module designed for drama schools but is perfect for those new to the industry or those looking for a refresher.
The module can be run as a 5 week online course for private clients and drama schools, or clients can pick stand-alone sessions. Each session is capped at 15 participants.
The course is designed to provide participants with the skills to identify and work towards their individual goals within the industry. To build a career with longevity underpinned by self-esteem and an excellent working knowledge of how to thrive as an actor in an uncertain industry.
It is preferable that you take these 90 minute sessions in the following order but of course isn’t compulsory.
1. Motivation & goal setting.
This session starts meditatively & encourages the student to ‘dream’. The succeeding exercises help the student to break those dreams down into very specific, actionable targets. They will leave with a 12 month roadmap of their own making to start them on their way.
2. Getting Started.
What do you ACTUALLY do as you start out on your path as a professional actor? We cover Skills, Building your community & Finding work. Most importantly this session looks at deciding IF you should apply for the work you find. By the end of this workshop the student will know how to read job adverts & make decisions about whether the job is worth their time as a trained professional.
3. Demystifying Spotlight.
What is it? How do I get on it? How do casting directors use it? An all encompassing jargon busting intensive. Don’t know your BSF from your OOH? After this session you will. Furthermore you’ll know all about agreements (fees) for different types of media & how to write a great application.
4. Transferable Skills.
You might leave training & walk straight into Hollywood. You might not. This workshop helps students discover what else their performing skills can offer them. A motivational session discussing how to find work that pays the bills, keeps you happy & enables you to pursue what you REALLY want to be doing.
5. Money Money Money.
Contracts. Invoices. Budgeting. Keeping Records. Tax returns. Let’s do this.
